Low tech lighting is difficult for 20 longs since they are only 12 inches tall. The fugeray is a nice light, but you may want to raise the light about 3 or maybe 4 inches off the tank so the par is more around mid 30's which is perfect for low tech. And with 35-40 PAR your plant choices are very plentiful. You can try some rotala, ludwigia, crypts, moss, anubias, java fern ect.
